I’m Alan O Rourke, I have always had a great love of music, especially the banjo. My idol would have been the late great Barney McKenna, he could make a banjo sing.
Al’s Banjos, Guitars & Mandolins are completely handcrafted using only solid hardwoods. Every instrument is built with extreme dedication and attention to each and every detail, offering a beautiful and unique banjo to every customer.
I offer custom builds to order. Allowing you, the customer to choose which hardwood, tone, ring, skin, action an also will personalise the pearl inlays etc.
I build the instrument that you want, exactly how you want it. There are banjos, guitars & mandolins available in workshop for customers to try out. All of which are set up slightly different, which helps the customer choose what it is they want.
I also offer a repair service, contact us for more information.
